The Kremlin says that U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security adviser is set to visit Russia.

Asked to comment on an Interfax news agency report that John Bolton is due to visit Russia next week as part of preparations for a U.S.-Russian summit, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed Bolton’s expected visit to Moscow but refrained from further comment.

Responding to media reports that Putin’s meeting with Trump may take place next month, Peskov said Thursday that “we have nothing to say yet, and if and when we are ready we will make the relevant statement.”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov emphasized that “we are ready for contacts,” adding that “if the agreement on a high-level meeting is reached, it will be announced.”
